DIY: Monogram Stickers

When I made my invitations, I also wanted to add some flare to the back of the envelopes. I had been looking at making stickers, but could not find sticker paper. When I was at friends house, who loves to scrapbook, I asked if she had a sticker machine, which she did and allowed me to utilize it. They were so easy to make.

Items needed:
  • Xyron sticker maker
  • Pattern
  • Scissors

First you have to create a pattern of what you want your sticker to look like. I took our monogram and and created a table in Microsoft Word. Once created, I printed them and cut them into squares. After the monograms were cut, I placed them in the top slot of the Xyron machine. Once in the item is placed in the top slot, I pulled the sticker paper at the bottom of the machine and the monogram was between two sheets of the Xyron sticker paper.


Below shows how your sticker comes out of the Xyron machine. When I pulled the top layer of the sticker material and was left with the monogram being sticky on the back.
I placed my stickers on the back of the envelope to assist in sealing them. I think that they turned out pretty good and added some personalization to envelope.

I agree with you on that. Making your own sticker for your invitation will really add up some personalization to the envelope. Thanks for also sharing the tips on how to make one. I will try that for sure...
